Re-roofing in Bellevue, WA

 

 

Overlap is Essential When Re-Roofing

When you re-roof your home, it is the typically outermost layer of your roof that is being replaced. Whatever type of roof you choose to re-install on your home, it must be installed so every piece overlaps in a way that channels water to flow downward rather than inward. Even your roofing nails or staples must be covered by another piece of roofing from above or protected with roofing cement.
